Messages from stranger in Whatsapp

Now days it's become a common issue that people are getting Messages from stranger in Whatsapp

It's because, Mobile Number and Profile pictures appears to all members of groups which one is joined

Normally on average if you have 10 groups that means upto 1000 people can see Profile picture and Mobile Number and all these people can contact you

This problem seriously to female whatsapp users, and it can be solved by not putting original  Picture and girlish Name

You can also go in SETTINGS => ACCOUNT => PRIVACY => PROFILE PICTURE and change it to Only my Contacts option

But If you want to have your name and picture then even it can be solved by using "Block" option in Whatsapp

Use the Block button which is displayed when you get a message from somebody who is not in your address book

When you block people on WhatsApp, you will no longer receive WhatsApp messages from them.

Blocked contacts don't get "last seen" updates and updates to that contact's profile picture.

Once you block a contact, every time they message you they'll see a single tick, an indication that you haven't read the message.

You can also report to Admin of Group, So Admin can also remove that kinda people who creates problems for others.
